What does a park host do?
Park host volunteers are stewards of Crook County Parks and Recreation District (CCPRD) operated campgrounds. As representatives of CCPRD, they provide support for park guests, staff and are instrumental in taking care of our camping facilities. Their incredible volunteer efforts help us to truly achieve our mission: To enhance the quality of life in our community through diverse programs, beautiful facilities and excellent customer service.
What is the time commitment?
Volunteer hosts make a minimum commitment of at least 30 days per host assignment. The length of stay can vary, as well as the hours per week. Typically you can expect to spend 32 hours per week hosting.
What are the benefits of being a park host?
